The process of applications, payments, and issuance of possession letters for the scheme were  done online through the AWAAS software. The scheme is linked to the credit-linked subsidy scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Housing for All (Urban).

Moreover, the authority has introduced a new clause in the scheme, under which the applicant can choose the kind of flat they want in a society, by paying ‘preferential location charges’ (PLC), which will be 1.5%- 3% of the total cost of the flat.  For example, for green-facing, ground floor, corner location, facing main road, etc., the applicant will have to pay up to 3% of the total cost as PLC.

The DDA officials said that there will be multi-level underground parking with up to three parking slots for each flat. Other features such as rainwater harvesting and a three-tier, in-house water management model, will also be embedded in the complexes. Apart from this, water generated from the harvesting method will be supplied in the bathrooms and kitchens.

DDA fake call centre advisory

The DDA, on September 10, 2019, cautioned that a ‘fake call centre’ was being operated in the name of the urban body, which was allegedly reaching out to unsuccessful and wait-listed applicants of the Housing Scheme 2019 for the allotment of flats. A senior DDA official said, police action was being initiated in the case.

“It is notified for the information of the general public that no such call centre number has been provided by the DDA and the details of the bank and IFSC Code are also false and fraudulent,” the DDA said in a statement. The telephone number of the ‘so-called call centre has been quoted as 18002122593’, it said. “Further, some fraudulent and fictitious link and bank details in the name of DDA Housing Ltd with IFSC code IDIB000N022 are also being provided for deposit of registration amount of Rs 2 lakhs,” the statement said.

The DDA said that it had not started the procedure for allotment to wait-listed applicants of its Housing Scheme 2019 and asked people to be beware of such ‘dubious calls by unauthorised persons’.


Concession for EWS housing

The DDA, on July 9, 2019, decided to reduce the cost of EWS flats in Narela, being offered under the new Online Housing Scheme 2019, by giving a concession of up to 40% to allottees, officials said. The scheme, which ended on June 10, 2019, was for the sale of nearly 18,000 newly-built flats in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj and Narela residential areas, for which the DDA had received about 50,000 applications.

The decision was made, taking into consideration the income criteria of allottees of EWS category, which is Rs 3 lakhs per annum, officials said. “It was considered appropriate to reduce the cost of EWS flats, by offering 40% concession in construction cost, for 6,536 EWS flats at Pocket 1A, 1B and 1C, Narela and similarly, 10% concession in construction cost for EWS flats at Pocket G7/G8, Sector V, Narela, to offer affordable housing to economically weaker section, as a one-time measure,” the statement said.

The modified rates would apply to allottees of the current scheme. In case of leftover flats, it would be re-advertised at reduced rates. This would help in providing these flats at concessional rates to the economically weaker sections, it said.
